The announcement was made here at the North American Spine Society 27 annual meeting, where in fact the company is featuring the ACIS System alongside the ZERO-P VA, a new zero-profile stand-alone two variable angle screw construct for ACDF that premiered previously this full year. The spacers are constructed with PEEK*OPTIMA radiolucent materials and features a large axial lumen to maximize the region for packing autogenous bone graft and enable fusion that occurs through the spacer. Accompanying instrumentation streamlines the ACDF treatment. The ACIS System will be used in combination with supplemental fixation.Under this process, Congress would not have to develop an alternative and current law would remain in impact if the Board’s proposals aren’t approved by Congress. Transparency: The Senate legislation says that the Board may hold hearings concerning their proposals if they consider these forums advisable. This accepted places an excessive amount of authority with the Panel deciding when, or even if, to carry hearings on important Medicare payment issues. The Board could decide never to hold hearings simply, of the reason regardless, which would prevent adequate stakeholder input effectively. THE FACULTY recommended that to ensure transparency in the Commission’s proceedings and adequate opportunity for stakeholder input, that the legislation mandates the Commission to hold a minimum number of hearings before proposals are finalized.
